Verify the Integrity of Downloads

It is essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP or MD5 signatures. The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. Begin by following these steps:

  1. Download the KEYS
  2. Download the asc signature file for the relevant distribution
  3. Verify the signatures using the following commands, depending on your use of PGP or GPG:

    $ pgpk -a KEYS
    $ pgpv apache-activemq-<version>-bin.tar.gz.asc


    $ pgp -ka KEYS
    $ pgp apache-activemq-<version>-bin.tar.gz.asc


    $ gpg --import KEYS
    $ gpg --verify apache-activemq-<version>-bin.tar.gz.asc

(Where <version> is replaced with the actual version, e.g., 5.1.0, 5.2.0, etc.).
